    The foot !!!!

    Zoom G3XPublished on 09/17/14 at 10:48

    I let you see on the site of Zoom.
    It's digital, traditional jack and USB for editing and control of presets.

    UTILIZATION

    Everything is simple.
    You have 6 real effects pedals (or amp simulation) under the feet.
    You can put the same effect as many times as you want in a preset same.
    The parameters of each effect type are very complete.
    Edit and share the software is perfect, each mod is instant, in one way or another, and we never tire of seeing the move "knobs" and other visuals on the pedalboard as soon as we walk on our mouse software.
    In fact, the manual is not used, apart for some explanation on USB recording settings, everything else is totally intuitive.

    Factories effects are too demonstrative, but compared to G7.1ut you have great interest has changed, the grind, to fall into a world of pure happiness.

    SOUND QUALITY

    So There, gentlemen, NOTHING TO SAY !!!
    I think it largely crushed cranks the most advanced Line 6, the Digitech and also much of the BOSS!
    I had the opportunity to test large delay pedals, reverb, chorus and so on ... The result of this G3 simply worthy of studio effects. One has the impression of the sound was reworked before leaving the beast, like when you listen to the record of our favorites: it always seeks to replicate the stamp, this echo. And there, ca stack falls over every time.
    I'm about Ibanez RGA Micro Active, and it works great !!! Finally it was my opinion until the last weekend and I tried it with a Musicman John Petrucci 2003 ... And then I resell my Ibanez for a musicman, so it's up !!!
    Level amp simulation is numérque therefore still "a little" cold, but just with the 6 band equalizer, voila.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had six months, javais ut G7.1 before, and really, that's the day and night !!
    No regrets, probably the best value on the market.
    What I like the most? it's a monster !! a real studio!
    I forgot: any delay in recording USB ...

    Digital multi-effect.
    Tuner, integrated drum machine and looper.
    6 effects are possible simultaneously.
    It can connect to a computer via mini USB.
    It comes with cubase software "Sequel" but I register audacity which is a small studio that can be loaded free on the net. Basically it's the same thing but this sequel is free.

    For box rhytme there 40 patch available (normal, rock, pop heavy metal ... etc). We can adjust the volume and tempo even when it is switched on.

    For the looper, it is 40 seconds without being able to delete and 20 seconds when you want to erase a portion superimposed.

    Can be superimposed loops at least 5 times (I did not go further but it is possible to stack more).

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of this multi makes are easy to use.
    Each effect is represented in a small LCD screen. You can change each parameter of the effect by turning a three button under the screen.

    It's super effective and it sounds good.

    On my amp I have no distos. Well now I have one. I had a choice of twenty overdrive pedals from the nasty distortion.

    Usage is simple.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Noise reductor.
    Booster.
    Overdrive.
    Distortion.
    Muff.
    Equalizer.
    Amp simulation.
    Chorus.
    Flanger.
    Phaser.
    Univibe.
    Reverb.
    Delay.
    And gadgets such as a synthesizer that makes you play the guitar with a synth.
    Modulations that I did not know as a bombeur or dozens of small effects in this genre. It is not used much but it's fun.

    I am not a professional but I think the effects are valid. In any case for me, I get to have sounds that is super beautiful. I do not know the true analog pedals.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I play guitar for three years. I in a sunburst strat american standard 1996 and a champion 600 (no group yet). This cheap little multi wonders. I'm really satisfied. He helped me progress with the looper 40 seconds. I record a rhythm, I put on play and I work my improvisations above.

    Find a sound is super simple, I built a twenty patch ranging from clean to wild distortion. I think its good effects but frankly I never buy analog pedals so I can not give you a proper comparison.

    Zoom thank you for this product. I buy mine 175 euros it may be a year. If you want to have an impact and that you do not have the means to buy good analog pedals then this is what you need. I can highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed especially since the price is down year.

    One last thing. This tool allows you to save on your computer. You can share your tunes with friends. Just put your records on a USB key. I suggest you download audacity on the net. This is the same thing (and worse still) Cubase but it's totally free.

    A soon.
    Mathias.

    see manufacturer's website. Caracs identical to g3, with an expression pedal and about 200 grams more.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is childish at first. Same pure editing sounds. Everything is pure fact that we have the impression of having a pedal board underfoot, the son in less ;) Secondly, as with all multi-effects, it takes time to refine his sound.

    The compactness of the material has the defect that is often based on a lot of buttons to access the desired page. It must be set up at home to hopefully make rpeter or the live, without the fuss.

    Contrary to what I read elsewhere, I had a manual in French, very well done.

    Contrary to what I read elsewhere, I had a manual in French, very well done.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The effects are bluffing. Special mentions to reverbs and delays in large numbers. I was a little afraid of amp simulations and HP, and distos. Well it's really not bad. The simulations are typed, pretty versatile, with respect for the instrument and play

    I use a godin freeway classic and electro-acoustics.

    Some effest a little gadget but much less than before in zoom. The choice of giving a wide range of simus, distos and common effects is very good.

    I have not tested the output to the console, right on headphones and amp. I will soon because it is partly why I bought it (tired of lugging my amp for réepts). I tell you later if you can do without an ID and if the sound captures live console.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just got it today. Just unwrapped 3:00 This game is all we ask a corny like this: have the sound you want, have fun to play, find new ideas with sounds that we would not used.

    Yes I had a boss, the Korg, Zoom. By far this is the best in simulations, especially for distorted sounds. It is also the most compact and far. Finally, it is the only one I had that offers its functional map.

    A very big plus for me: the sound card works without any problems, it is standard USB compliant, so no need special drivers, and is recognized under linux pronto. Congratulations to zoom it.

    BUT! Big big downside, which I hope will work out quickly: just out of the box, and displays a hatch, and the use of knobs causes simply stopping the machine .

    It is therefore too early to know if I do it again this choice. In theory yes, but I asked to see the next model I'll have to exchange it, and how long it will last. I raise my grade in that time.

    In smaller less, running the pedal, and the looper a little cheap.

    The +:
    - The case is nice and sturdy, the buttons and solid pedal.
    - Effects of excellent quality, and many
    - Built-in Looper
    - Tuner
    - Menus and functions very well thought
    - Integrated sound card that works under linux
    - Direct input output

    Cons:
    - Pedal stroke tiny effect
    - Electronic perhaps doubtful, and anxiety about life (check)
    - Basic looper without storing loops

    Multi-effects digital new generation who gets the most known effects pedals and simulations of the most famous amps with the same settings as on the real one can change on the fly with 3 knobs for each effect
    Its 3 large LCD displays and footswitches provide an interface to use and handle up to 6 amps and effects pedals simultaneously and in any combination.
    The expression pedal is included especially for me wah.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration is much simpler than conventional multi-effects. A marvel of simplicity with a looper and a drum included.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Question sound is downright stunning, gorgeous, I abandoned my pedalboard with my analog effects without regret. Digital technology has really made tremendous progress. The archi-purists probably find fault but frankly this pedal is built for the scene with a small footprint, ease of use and all the essential sounds easily editable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month and every day I am pleased with this purchase.
    The only criticism I can make is the lack of volume control on my part because I do not have amp potentiometer to control the output level in the effects loop. Nothing serious volume pedal input is provided on the Zoom but you have to buy more.
    Report excellent quality / price since it costs the price of a single quality pedal ...

    Great addition to a tube preamp

    But adapted to the digital guitar technician too nostalgic for his old pedals

    UTILIZATION

    super simple

    The PC editor is super convenient but not essential as publishing on the pedals is childish and recalls working with separated while to switch from one mode of patches programmed to access each individual pedal (chorus pedals, delay and equalizer for me)

    SOUND QUALITY

    I have not even tried neither modeling nor distortion

    I use a chorus, analog delay, equalizer to round the sound and reverb with the expression pedal set to go from rhythm to solo (volume of 80 to 100, perfect)

    everything behind AMTSS11 preamp

    OVERALL OPINION

    for 2 months now and I feel I finally have a super easy to carry around config (everything is mounted on a board) which gives me the sounds I've always dreamed of.

    Note that I always use the same sounds (clear, a crunch and more saturated on the preamp) and not trying to imitate this or that!!

    and the drum machine can troubleshoot to work!! I recommend, in any case, in addition to a set of good basic sound, given my little experience

    I will not go over all that has been said in the previous opinion but it's just a foot numériqueprésentant everything may need a guitarist on stage (and even more, which uses six effects at once in a song?)

    So we have dimulations amps, pedals and stuff, modulations, delays, reverbs and many esoteric effects which I do not serve!

    Use may be in the form of pedals, as if we had the pedals or by patches.
    Operation is an ID that allows you to switch amp on stage.
    The settings can be saved on PC

    UTILIZATION

    The settings are very simple and intuitive, the manual is well done and you can go read it. You can easily reach the desired sound.

    That side RAS. well it is true that my only multi-effect so far was a Roland GP8 and since then it has been better and easier in terms of usability!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Then there is the offensive side arriveau digital!
    I use this lens with a G3X 50 strat pickups mounted with Benedetti and slap strativarius very very strat 60s.
    If we talk about sound effects, distos and all that can be found there, it clearly recognizes the different types of "amps, effects, etc ... point for the acoustic simulator that is like my guitar takamine connected to a piezo 90s style fiddling and adjustments, we arrive at cool stuff that simulate well the character of instrument.

    For the effects we found it as well, paradoxically, I liked modeling pedals Boss OD1 and DS1!
    Some effects in my opinion are useless (Delay + picht in a pedal), but otherwise we will say that it is wrong and not all models I've tried (BOSS GT100 and including Line 6) is I've found better in terms of respect for dynamics and nuance.

    But one thing bothers me a little is that my microphone (very typical) lost their slamming their character and clear sound. Saturation that SOTE gum snapping suddenly these sounds are ok but lack clear sounds a little nia!

    So, it will be in an assembly of this kind Sans Amp GT2 for clean sounds, Boss LS2 that will pass or without sound in the G3X for saturation (in this case, switch pedal input must be in a active

    Quality remains very good, I put him on August 1

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have for some months, I tried many styles and taste mpon it easily matches a Boss GT 100 or Line 6 high quality!
    effects are escellents bémole and only I can give him is a little less clear on the sounds

    In my opinion this is the day which is better in terms of value for money on the market

    Pedal purchased to replace a Boss ME25.

    The display is made by logos and without numbers, such as sequential display is you never know where we are in the list, sorry.
    on the other hand, once found good effect settings for each effect is very simple and much more readable than the Boss.
    At the start of display is curiously the publishing of the current patch. It would be best to arrive directly on the selection mode patch, as the Boss.
    Please note a on / off button missing on the Boss ME25!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound quality is the first argument that research.
    The pedal is connected to a Yamaha sound Stagepas 500, so a more neutral sound.
    The guitar a strat 50s.
    There he are no picture Zoom the G3X is much better than the Boss ME 25.
    The reverb is remarkable. Associated with some amp simulation somewhat retro though successful as we find happiness in music "Shadows" for more modern sounds.
    One disappointment, acoustic simulation, which simulates mainly the rope frieze.
    With the Boss ME 25 I never got to balance the power between bass and treble, the G string always sounded too loud. more there was a lot of high frequency harmonics, sort of larsène.
    Zoom on the balance is perfect, the sound much purer, better balanced, better filtered.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a month, not enough to make a reliable opinion, some would say. (The Boss for 3 years)

    I do not like the selection effects, see above, but it does not change every day.
    The sound quality is by far the highlight of the Zoom G3 or G3X.
    The manufacturing quality is comparable to the Boss, I also found more attractive.
    Taking into account the quality / price ratio the Zoom G3 is the right choice and deserves 9/10.
    Which serves the Boss ME 25 somewhat a victim of this opinion, this is probably a design and a processor older.
